Hey Guys, ive been over on the E60 board ever since i bought an E60 (go figure); But to the point: I miss the oval mirror and so i bought one from an M3 (they are the same E39-E46 right?), and installed it in my E60; the red button works but the auto dimming doesn't:

Actual Question: Has anyone mounted the rectangular E60 unit in the E39? Did you have to switch some wires around or did it work straight away?

Thanks

PS Miss the E39 in many ways but that V10/Euro Smg is just silly....

The M3 and M5 mirrors have different part numbers. I would suspect they are not the same considering the last part of their descriptions is slightly different, I would say that is confirmation. The last part of the M5 is IR meaning infrared and on the M3 it is radio. The M3 mirror does not have IR which is why the auto dimming does not work. Before you do anything like that you should check the WDS, you can burn things out by hooking up the wrong things to each other.
